After almost two years of practicing with my harmonicas, I do believe that I deserve the purchase of my first pedal. But which one? Bullet mike or a straight up classic mike? Any comments or stories and suggestions?.

Welcome Wes

I think you have lots of things going for you. A son and a wife starting out on their musical journey, so you can all discuss and learn together.

Having no musical background won't hold you back (insert some joke about a music star with no talent if you wish), that will come, if you do five things.
1. Practise
2. Listen to music
3. Practise
4. Listen to music. And
5. Practise.

It will come in time. Look forward to hearing about your improvements.

Hi Neville and welcome to the club.

Glad you have a supportive wife, as many of us here have wives who prefer to not hear us play. I'm not helped over here when they have a particularly woeful harmonica player wailing on a TV station Identity advert.

Trouble with playing music is you improve so gradually that you hardly notice it yourself, so I would take your wife's opinion at face value. If you keep practising it's very difficult not to improve.

One trick is to record yourself in stages (to share here or not, it really is just for you) then go back and listen to yourself. It may seem hard, but you'll notice improvements, if only in tone, which is a major improvement believe me. Better to be a player who can play slow but with good tone, than one who has all the tricks, but has an awful tone.

Welcome again.

Well, that quite a bit aways nice to hear from you.
Sounds like you'll have a good jump on it since you play other instruments as well..
It's all timing and rhythm you can make it as simple or intricate as you want once you get going on it..
Good luck
Have fun

Could be for draw, blow or bend. There seems to be quite a few ways in which tunes are tabulated.

Hey guys!

Just starting out on the harp. Have been wanting to play for years, but somehow things conspired to prevent me.

I play guitar, bass and drums mostly in a blues/rock or blues kind of vibe and am involved in an informal band where i mostly play lead guitar.

Looking forward to mingling here and meeting fellow harp enthusiasts!

wes013 created a new topic ' Hello from Nashville' in the forum. 13 hours 19 minutes ago

I trust that this message will find each of you doing well. My name is Wes, and I'm from just outside of Nashville, TN. I've recently purchased my first harp (Suzuki Hammond ~ C), and am eager to begin learning. I have zero musical background, so it's a bit overwhelming right now. Honestly, I'm not sure where to begin the process. My son will be picking up piano soon, and my wife is strumming the guitar...So, I couldn't let them leave me behind. Thus, my interest in learning the Harmonica. I look forward to future dialogue with the group, and hope to soak up as much knowledge as posssible.

BruceRoscoe created a new topic ' Ultra Bend by Suzuki' in the forum. 2 days ago

I'm looking into the Suzuki Ultra Bend. Has anyone purchased one? I've been playing diatonic harps (still not very good) but I'm also thinking about a Seydel Chromatic. Any thoughts?

george replied to the topic 'Your Other Hobbies?' in the forum. 3 days ago

I came across a song, "Whiskey on a Sunday," about a Haitian in Scotland that made his way in the world with a plank and three dancing dolls. I remembered that we had used dancing dolls when we played for the elementary schools for our children, and decided to see if I could make one that would fit with our Irish playing. It looks good, it dances nicely, it always smiles, but now I have to find a way to play and make the doll dance at the same time. I know there's a neck holder for the harmonica, but now I need to find a holder of some type for the plank and doll!

I have a feeling that all movie players will have this feature somewhere. :)

george replied to the topic 'Slowing music tracks down' in the forum. 5 days ago

I guess I was so caught up in trying to put my recordings into wav or mp3 to even think about slowing or speeding a piece or section. And there it is, although I'm on the free version and the button and slider are on the left. This might come in really handy later. Thanks for knowing and thanks for sharing.
Geo.
